Guerilla Tactics for Defense Lawyers
In litigation and in warfare, there has always been conventional wisdom, and it has sometimes been more conventional than wise. Conventional wisdom is what told the British in 1776 that the best way to beat the Americans was to march row after row of soldiers wearing bright red uniforms across open fields in plain sight of minute men hiding in the trees with squirrel rifles. (And we all know how well that worked out for the British.) In this seminar, veteran defense lawyer Michael Hurley shares practical advice and innovative tactics for case management, drafting pleadings, preparing experts, managing documents, defending privileges and joint-defense agreements, as well as winning strategies for jury selection, opening statement, and closing argument.
